Guide to all achievements from Baldur's gate: Dark Alliance II. Includes information about how to get them.
Root Can*l – No Anesthesia
Near the beginning, you can enter Bile-Tooth's Treasury via Red Fang Goblin Lair.
The Elemental Planes are your first chance to enter
You will be teleported from Omduil’s Manor to activate elemental foundations in the second part of the game.
Kill 100 Goblins
This will come as you play through the game.
With a single explosive canister, you can kill 3 enemies
You can easily do this in the Sewers in Baldur's Gate. As you go through the sewers, you'll find yourself in a room containing normal barrels (the larger ones) as well as a black powder barrel (smaller but lighter in color) that has three rats trying to reach your face. Simply hit the black powder bar to light the fuse. After that, wait for the explosion to occur. It's possible that the rats will quickly die.
Kill 1000 enemies using a melee gun
It's easy to understand, and will be a natural part of your playthrough depending on what playstyle you choose.
Ranged weapons can kill 1000 enemies
The explanation is obvious and will come naturally depending on how you play. This was something I found out while playing with Borador the dwarf (Borador). I used a crossbow, but bows and throwing knifes should work.
The Vlad Touch
Vampiric touch can do 2000 damages
Play as the necromancer Ysuran and acquire the "Vampiric touch" skill. Then, start killing.
My Buddy Drizzt
500 enemies defeated as Drizzt Don'Urden
You can unlock Drizzt by completing the game on any difficulty. Once you have Drizzt unlocked, you can select Alessia the cleric and press DOWN on the D-PAD. You can either go a bit beyond the sewer quest to get 500 kills or use Drizzt during your Extreme Mode playthrough.
My Pal Artemis
Artemis Entreri allows you to defeat 500 enemies
You need to complete the game on extreme difficulty in order to unlock Artemis. Once you have obtained the unlock key, you can select Artemis from the character selection screen by choosing Alessia (the Clerical) and then pressing down twice on your DPAD. If you start a fresh game, you will need to obtain 500 kills.
Important note regarding most of these achievements
After you've defeated the last boss, you'll be asked if it is okay to save the game. You can save your game to help you get the most out of the playthrough achievements.
After loading the savegame (pause, change players, import or new), you can import any character from an existing savegame or a new level 1. Once the import is complete, click the black pylon and watch the end credits to claim your playthrough achievement.
This applies to all achievements which require you to play the game with a specific character.
It was easy!
Complete the game on any difficulty
The game is self-explanatory. You can only complete the game once, on any difficulty, with any character you choose.
Play Extreme mode and beat the game
Self-explanatory. I wouldn’t recommend starting a new character to do this. Instead, you can use Drizzt (unlocked by finishing the game on any difficulty) as well as importing the character from your first playthrough. If you import a normal player into extreme mode, they will only be able to keep their skills and levels. Drizzt begins with very good melee weapon so that it makes things easier.
Table for Two
Complete the game with co-op mode
Just finish the game with co-op mode. This seems to require 2 controllers…at most I haven’t been capable of figuring out how one player can use keyboard/mouse, and the other a controller.
Alessia Makes a Mess-aya
Complete a Human Cleric Playthrough on any difficulty
Finish the game with Alessia, the cleric.
Bora down with Borador
Complete a Dwarven Rogue Playthrough with any difficulty
Finish the game with Borador the dwarf
Dorn did it
Playthrough: Human Barbarian Playthrough on any difficulty
Finish the game together with the barbarian (Dorn).
Play through a Dark Elf Monk Game on any difficulty
Finish the game by playing with the monk (Vhaidra).
Ysuran is the Man
Playthrough a Moon Elf Necromancer playthrough on any difficulty
Finalize the game by completing the necromancer's (Ysuran) quest.
Earn your first level
This will occur within the first few seconds of playing the game.
Can I Sell Stuff
Baldur’s Gate, next to Purple Wyrm, is the place to sell an item.
Sell any item to the Baldur's Gate vendor. You can find the vendor by the door to the Tavern. He will be wearing a yellow exclamation mark (quest icon) on his head when you first visit.
Why can't i have everything?
Maximize your carrying ability
Keep taking what you can until it is no longer possible to carry. If you still have problems with this, you could continue importing a character using a savegame (pause and change players -> import player -> choose savegame to import character) and dropping off items until you reach your maximum carrying limit.
What's yours is mine
Explore over 500 loot
This should come easily if your first playthrough has you opening every chest/barrel and breaking every crate/barrel.
Rest in Peace…Again
Just die twice back to back. I saved my game, ran into an enemy group, died, was resurrected, then ran into the group to die another time.
Fear the Feat
Upgrade one feat and reach rank 5
You just need to upgrade any feat/skill from rank 1 to rank 5, which you will undoubtedly do during your first playthrough.
Feats Don't Fail Me Now
Upgrade one feat to Rank 5.
You will need one feat/skill for rank 5 with all standard characters (exclusions Drizzt/Artemis unlockable characters).
Note: Since I'm not sure how this is being recorded, I decided to play it safe and created 3 savegames containing 3 different characters as well as the 4th savegame from the first playthrough.
Use +wisdom gear if you have it to increase your experience gain. By the time you finish the sewers quest, you should be able reach rank 5 with any skill. To make it faster, import your endgame player and drop all gear and high-damage weaponry.
Once I had 4 savegames of 4 different characters (each one having at least one skill at rank 5, I started a brand new game with the last one missing, played until I reached rank 5, with one skill, and the achievement popped.
Max level for any character
You must reach level 40 to get this achievement, which is not usually possible in your first playthrough. This can be obtained by using Drizzt or an import of a character. This will be faster if you have items which increase your experience gain with +wisdom.
Sidequests allow you pay gold for experience in towns for the cleric or dwarf, monk, or necromancer. These quests require you to pay 2000 gold for 2000 experience. You can do them four times, with each increase in experience and price. The first quest costs 2000. Second, 4000, Third, 8000, and Fourth, 16000.
You can make these quests multiple times by using two savegames (let’s just call them A andB) and the character-import feature. Start with savegame "A" where you haven’t yet done the quests. (Or at least not the 16000-gold one). Then import character from Savegame B. Save the game as savegameB after you complete the quest. Load savegame AB again and import your character from savegame B. Next, spend 16000 Gold again, then save as savegame AB. Rinse and repeat.
If you are short of gold, import a character with a high-value gear, drop it, and then sell it as often you need.
Crafting All Day
42 custom items can be created in the Workshop
A base item (no +X prefix required) of at minimum fine quality is necessary to craft items. Fine Crossbow (not Crossbow and Shoddy Crossbow!) as well as 1 Rune Stone. Rune Stones can either be purchased from a vendor in town, or you can find them during a playthrough. Additionally, vendors sometimes sell gear of better quality. After you have the items in your possession, visit the vendor at Baldur's Gate. Ask to use his workshop and then combine the item and the runestone.
You can import characters to drop the items, without having to purchase or find them 42 more times. To be clear, you don’t need to craft 42 unique items. However, you can always craft one (e.g. crafting a +1 Fine Crossbow).
